Hi. I'm new, but I was reading the posts and for RedTruckGirl, I use the CytoSport Complete Whey protein shakes and I just use water to make them. Milk adds too many calories for me. As long as you shake them up a few hours before you are going to drink them, they are awesome! If you don't wait long enough, they are kind of gritty and too thin. Just a suggestion. I've been drinking protein shakes off and on for years and it's a really easy way to increase your protein intake. Also, another book that might interest you is Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle by Tom Vinuto (I may have spelled that wrong). It's like the Holy Grail for fat loss and muscle building.

Lentils in salads is a great idea. I'm going to use that one for sure. Thanks!

Hi there,

Look at eating fish, chicken, beans and lentils (add them to salads) and peanut butter and you could add in a soya based protein shake.

I have been trying to find ways of increasing my protein intake without increasing my fat intake. I am very rarely meeting my daily protein goals. I am usually under by less than 10g. My trouble is that I don't eat a lot of red meat, I'm lactose intolerant (can make yogurt work - yeah, bacteria!), and hate the texture of eggs. I usually get about 15 g of protein for breakfast with GoLean cereal, yogurt and a banana and feel full. I try and eat nuts during the day and hide eggs from myself (souffles and quiches). If tuna weren't so overfished I would take probably eat more of that. Any other quick easy ways to boost protein intake!

Besides chicken and tilapia every day, what's a girl to do?

Hello,
My husband read the 4 Hour Body. He was trying the suggested Slow Carb eating method from the book. He was eating eggs, beans, and spinach for breakfast. I tried increasing my protein to 30 grams and wasn't even close. I would have to throw in a protein shake to get to 30.

According to the book, "Eating at least 40% of your breakfast calories as protein will decrease carb impulses and promote negative fat balance." Ferris encourages at least 20 grams per meal, but he seen the more rapid fat loss when people consume 30 calories for breakfast.

I was just flipping through the book and realized that a protein shake is probably not an option since dairy is on the no list. hmmm.

What did you eat for breakfast in order to get 30g of protein? I'm trying to increase my protein, so any suggestions will help!

What is the reason for such big protein breakfast? Why is it beneficial?

I saw him on Dr. Oz. He had some very interesting insights. I keep forgetting to order the book, I'm going to do it now. That sounds like a lot of protein to get in, but I'm going to give it a try this am.

I've never heard of it either. Between 0.7 and 0.85 grams per kilo of body weight (depending on activity level) spaced out through the day and from a variety of food sources is typically recommended.

I've never heard of it, but I do get close to that sometimes- I like to eat tuna for breakfast for some reason... I feel full the whole rest of the day when I do that.

I have been reading the 4 hour body and it's recommended to eat a min of 30 grams of protein for breakfast. I am wondering if anyone else has read the book?

This is day 2 for me with the big breakfast. So far so good.
